Planning officials have recommended revised plans for the £3bn redevelopment of the Chelsea Barracks site in UK.

The revised plans have been drawn by Dixon Jones and Michael Squire.

The plans call for the development of 448 residences including 123 affordable homes.

The new scheme is designed around a central avenue with traditionally planned London squares.

The historic Garrison Chapel, currently on site, will be conserved and adapted to create a multipurpose community and cultural centre.

Other proposals include a sports centre, shops, a health centre and non-residential institutional uses.

Qatari Diar is the developer for the proposed redevelopment.

The previous modernist scheme, designed by Lord Rogers, was withdrawn following intervention from Prince Charles.
